Yunnan Radio and Television International, CHINA – 6035 kHz

On 15th November 2021, I logged the Yunnan Radio, broadcasting in the Chinese language on 6035 kHz.

Yunnan s a landlocked province in the southwest of China. The province spans approximately 394,000 square kilometres and has a population of 48.3 million. The capital of the province is Kunming. The province borders the Chinese provinces of Guizhou, Sichuan, autonomous regions of Guangxi, and Tibet as well as Southeast Asian countries: Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar.

The station was launched on the 1st day of October 1986. The station’s headquarters is located in Kunming. The transmitter power is 50kW. Until 2018 the station was known as the Voice of Shangri-La.

The overall reception of Yunnan Radion was fair. The signal strength was fair, but there appeared to be a ‘jamming’ signal on the frequency and I also noted a Jamming and an Over The Horizon Radar signal on the frequency.


Below is a short video of my reception of Yunnan Radio.

Hope Radio broadcasts religious programs into South East Asia from the island of Palau in the Pacific. Hope Radio’s mission is to preach the gospel in the most populated parts of the world.

The Hope Radio shortwave station on Palau was founded by George Otis Sr. of High Adventure Ministries. It was later sold to LeSEA Broadcasting under the late Dr Lester Sumrall’s ministry. In September 2020, Apostle Joe Perozich became the CEO of the station and established Hope Radio.

There is an interesting video on the Hope Radio website which explains the history of the station.

Hope Radio welcomes reception reports. Emailed reports receive an e-QSL verification card. Mailed reports receive a physical QSL card. You can download a Reception Report on their website.

The overall reception of Hope Radio was fair to good. The signal strength was good but there was moderate interference from the Sound of Hope on 9970 kHz.
